indian airlines flight was hijacked in canada are -- kandahar. if pakistan is the key to afghanistan come into holds the key to pakistan, but the bush administration i think was already predisposed to building up india as a kind of way to china and quickly realized also that india was going to be a very important player in the war on terror. said the bush administration launched this massive diplomatic exercise that culminated in the u.s. indian nuclear deal. if you look at the relationship from about 2005, it improves dramatically. in fact, the rhetoric about cross border infiltrations reduces a lot of positive things that happened until of course the 2008 mumbai attacks and that impetus is lost. whether the u.s. in india nuclear deal brought in essence to u.s. policy with respect to afghanistan, pakistan remains -- it is somewhat speculative. it is something i think has been on the minds of a lot of people thinking about weapon sales. can weapons salsa they provide the united states with some latitude when it comes to u.s. policy toward afghanistan and pakistan. this is particularly imp
at the general assembly held this fall in montreal, canada, where we hope to make our work towards strengthening international standards into an actual resolution of the international community through acio. i think it is also important to note that in addition to a.c.i.o. the airline industry's have been with us every step of the way. and we have collaborated closely with united states and international airline and trade associations. we have met with airline ceos. we have met with them shortly after christmas day to explain what security enhancements needed to go in place immediately, but what we were striving for in the following weeks. and i personally met with all of these leaders, and i have also met with heads of the international air travel association, and also sethe a.t.a., and they have voiced strong support for the international voice that we have begun and expressed, we hope, at this fall at the general assembly. i think it's true that it is clear that our potential for collaboration goes beyond counter-terrorism. the airline industry is the first line of defense against criminals o
are century link and bce out of canada and energy, and find names like chevron, well-known names. >> jamie: that's interesting and finally, commercials even for limited partnerships that's something that the average investigator can invest in. what are those and do you recommend them? >> i don't recommend them for the average investor. i recommend them for professionals and also an added caveat that you get a limited partnership you'll be dealing with a k-1 at the end of the year, a tax form. seek advice from a professional or certainly your accountant. >> jamie: one more question on bonds. they are paying lower yields. have never been negative? is your money at least safe there that you put in? >> well, there actually was a period of time in 2008 where t-bill yields were negative. people were so frightened including professionals they were willing to buy a t-bill for a negative rate of turn. >> jamie: david nelson we can't all afford someone like you privately, but nice to have you here. >> thank you, jamie. >> kelly: that was free advice there. well, as you fire up the grill for labor da
and mayor bloomberg are getting it right. remarkable stuff jeffrey canada is doing in harlem. jeffrey sachs, the bottom line is, i said earlier this week this is a moral issue, a national security issue, an economic issue. the united states of america can't move forward. we have to improve our k-12 education system. >> also a jobs issue. when you look at where the unemployment really is, those who finished college education have low unemployment. the unemployment is among people who don't have -- haven't been able to get through the educational system, get a bachelor's degree. so if we have all these dropouts, if we're not getting kids all the way through college these days and there's more and more of that, that's where the unemployment is also located. so it is national security. it's competitiveness. happiness, and it's the jobs. so this matters and these charter schools we're finding great successes and failures and it's a question of building on successes right now. >> coming up in just a few minutes, my your michael bloomberg. willie, how are you going to embarrass us. >> "the last wo
the way over there to canada and france, and that green line, that's the united states. we're second only to japan in terms of corporate tax rates. now, it's pretty hard for me to see the logic of complaining about things being made overseas, when what we do with our tax policy is tax corporations so heavily that you create an incentive to chase production overseas. if you're a businessman, you're competing. you're competing with all these other countries and what you're going to have to do is be competitive or else people won't by your product. so for us in congress to complain about foreign imports and things, when we've got a corporate tax rate that's second highest in the world, is once again an example of democrat tax policy being completely at odds with the goal of a strong economy and lots of jobs. you can't keep taxing the creator of jobs without losing your jobs. i think it's straightforward. i'm trying to make it simple. because there's one example after the other that our policies just don't make sense. here's a chart that's done a little more colorful way, we compete with fran
been talking about things, but not doing anything. hi, mr. canada... how are you? i'm doing great, how 'bout you? right here on 119th street. if we could fix this block, then we could fix the next block, then we could fix the next block... we promised parents, if your child stays with us, i guarantee you that child is going to graduate from college. failure is simply not an option. the sixty...the seventy... the eighty... the ninety-seven blocks which ends up being 10,000 children. we start with children from birth, and stay with those children until they graduate. if you really want to have an impact that is large, you will get there going one step at a time. there is no act that is too small to make a difference. no matter what you want to do, members project from american express can help you take the first step. vote, volunteer or donate at membersproject.com. . . . words alone aren't enough. my job is to listen to the needs and frustrations of the shrimpers and fishermen, hotel or restaurant workers who lost their jobs to the spill. i'm iris cross. bp has taken full responsibility
. >> steve: right. meanwhile, u.s. homeland security secretary janet napolitano is in montreal, canada to urge the international community to heighten security efforts and it's great we would have her on a breaking news day. good morning to you, may dam secretary. >> good morning. >> steve: how credible is this threat and what is the united states doing to help them? >> well, as director clapper said yesterday, we're not going to comment on specific threats except to say that we're constantly in contact with our allyies on a variety of threats and to make sure that we remain safe, both in the homeland and western interests abroad because al-qaeda is a determined adversary. >> brian: i think that the american people deserve an explanation and just to be updated, don't you think, could you tell us first off, are we included in this so-called alleged coordinated attack? >> well, without, again, commenting on specific threats, we are constantly active in a pro-active way to protect the american people and to protect interests around the globe. one of the reasons i'm here in montreal, for e
. shep special. we circumnavigated hurricane earl. we sailed up to canada and maine. we missed it by about 500 miles on the way down. then we had to cross the water, 36-foot waves, waves higher than my house! >> oh, my gosh. >> was it like a perfect storm? >> peter: even though the waves were 36 feet, i had to make a t to the breakfast buffet. >> brian: what cruise line was that. >> peter: celebrity cruise. >> brian: they did a good job? >> peter: they did. it was fun. we were on the summit. >> meanwhile, we have headlines for you. we begin with a severe weather alert. tropical storm hermine is bringing heavy rain and strong wind to southern texas. flood and tornado watches are in effect for several counties. the storms crossed into the state earlier this morning after battering northeast mexico. it could dump up to a foot of rain in some parts of texas. folks as far north as kansas could feel the effects. another alert. wild fire near boulder, colorado is forcing thousands of people to evacuate their homes. firefighters cannot save their own property, burning four of their hom
with very diseases. a clinic and ontario, canada, has already created over 130 lines for 11 diseases. this clinic is also working on making lines to address diseases such as autism, schizophrenia. if there are additional funds, congress should invest in this type of a ground-breaking research. supporters of the embryonic research would like to ignore such accomplishments. they would suggest that providing federal taxpayer dollars on its embryonic stem cell research is the only means of getting results. however the accomplishment among adults -- it proves otherwise. i am proud to say that for a decade and a half, this amendment has protected life. this debate involves profound ethical, and moral questions. this is a matter of conscience for me, but more importantly, it is a matter of conscience for millions of americans who are deeply troubled by the idea that there taxpayer dollars may be used to destroy another human life. when there are other proven techniques available. i want to thank you very much for your time and i appreciate the opportunity to testify. >> senator weicker, tha
. such as the sharp 225 study launching next month and studies in canada and europe. finally, wrapping up here, steps for harnessing technology, we have work to do, three big areas. one is to continue to support development of technology. i do think it can play a role to prevent distractions. these kinds of technology solutions need validation. we need research in passenger cars to figure out where they can deliver benefits, optimize those benefits and minimize any unintended consequences. secondly, we've got to make sure that as we introduce technologies, they continue to be integrated well, especially with the basic driver interface, and that will require shared guidelines across all manufactures, not just automakers and share test procedures. building hopefully on what the auto-- the alliance of automobile manufacturers has started and moving beyond that, perhaps, and finally, educating drivers to choose and use technology wisely because technology can only be a partner here. it requires a responsible driver. thank you.
